Get answers to all YOUR questions in the “Interview with Cerys”
Who will Street Feet Dance® classes work for?
Any child who wants to have fun learning Street Dance will benefit from attending our classes. We specialise in working with children, rather than all ages so it is particularly suited to children who are either complete beginners looking to increase their confidence or even confident young dancers looking for the next challenge and something to work towards.
What if you haven’t worked with a child like mine yet?
The chances are we have! We have worked with over 500 children from a variety of backgrounds and every time we have applied The Dance Confidence Formula, we have got results! So long as your child is committed and wants our classes to work for them, they will. We do specialise in working with children aged 3-15, as these are the ages I have immense knowledge of and my team and I can get the best results for. Having said that, we do occasionally work with people outside of this age bracket, if they particularly want to.
What makes you different from other dance teachers and dance schools out there?
If you take a look at my story on the ‘About’ page, you will find the reasons that led me to setting up a dance school with the unique aims that we have at Street Feet Dance. We ONLY teach children to become more confident through Street Dance and I am solely dedicated to getting our children these results. As a result, our children receive confidence boosting dance sessions from encouraging and supportive teachers, getting equal access to opportunities and are rewarded for their effort and achievements.
My child is already a confident dancer – will this work for them?
Yes absolutely. Our high value packages have been designed with children at every stage in mind. Check out the Getting Started page to see which class packages we have on offer to give your confident young dancer extra challenges to work towards, increasing the possibilities available to them.
What type of person does my child have to be for this to work for them?
They just have to be committed to coming to class on a consistent basis and open to participating fully in all activities provided in the packages and while they are in class. They can be a complete beginner who has never danced before or a confident Street Dancer looking for a challenge and an opportunity to showcase their talents, it doesn’t matter. If your child hasn’t yet taken one of our programs then they have not experienced what they need to experience in order to become more confident in themselves and in their dancing in the next 12 weeks.
For what type of children and parents are these programmes NOT going to work for?
They need to believe we can help them and that they CAN succeed. My team and I have a very positive attitude towards our work and we like our dancers and parents to be the same. If all you are worried about is the cost of our packages, this is not the right dance school for you and your child. If you do not think that my team and I are capable of achieving these results for your child, we would like to very politely ask you not to join one of our programmes. We like to spend our time encouraging hard working dancers to achieve what they want, increasing their confidence while learning Street Dance and having fun, not convincing negative people to stay on our programmes. At the end of the day, we won’t enjoy working together and I don’t want to waste your child’s time or your money.
Will my child get coaching in all the Street Dance styles?
Yes and no. This depends on which package you choose for your child. The Street Dance classes focus on a mixture of Street Dance styles, such as Hip Hop, Popping, Locking, Waacking and House (as well as commercial choreography) but Breaking foundations and tricks are saved for the Hip Hop and Breaking classes. If your child wants to become an all-round Street Dancer, you will need to select one of the packages that include two classes a week – a mix of other Street Dance styles AND Break dance.
What exactly is The Dance Confidence Formula?
The Dance Confidence Formula consists of 5 steps that are derived directly from my own experience of trial and error in getting children results in increased self-belief and confidence in their dancing in 12 weeks. These are things that our teachers include every day in our classes at Street Feet Dance for all of our dancers to experience. To find out more about The Dance Confidence Formula and the 5 steps to increased confidence through dance, head over to The Dance Confidence Formula page.
My child has tried dance classes before and they haven’t achieved these results. Does it really work?
Yes! The result of your child’s consistent commitment to our classes and packages means that you will see a noticeable increase in their self-belief and confidence in dancing in the next 12 weeks. Attending Street Feet Dance® sessions has worked for hundreds of children just like your child – head over to the Success Stories page to hear from other parents as to what their experiences have been like and how their children have benefited from attending our classes.
If I’m not sure if my child is ready for this, can I sample your work at a low cost to see if it’s right for them?
There are different class packages available to suit your child no matter what stage of dancing they are currently at. You can check which child profile your child relates to the most and which package is best for them on our Getting Started pages. If you want to sample more of Street Feet Dance with my compliments, the best thing to do right now is to sign up for a free taster class on the welcome page, which will help start your child’s journey towards becoming a confident dancer without putting a strain on your finances. You will also be kept up-to-date about any free taster events we are holding from time to time.
Will I get to meet you face to face if I sign my child up to Street Feet Dance® ?
Yes. Whilst I do not teach the classes myself, I do like to visit all our classes at least once a term. All of our dancers, parents and staff are very important to me – they are the reason I do what I do and I love to catch up with everyone and maintain that personal contact, even though I am not the class teacher.
What results can I expect for my child?
If your child consistently commits to participating fully in their chosen programme, they can happily expect to achieve the following results in as little as 12 weeks:
Have a significant increase in their confidence levels
Be able to move and dance with confidence
Have learnt steps and movements from at least one style of Street Dance
Have followed a proven method for progressing further with their skills and confidence
Stop wasting time attending classes that they don’t enjoy or don’t work for them
Can I contact some of your existing clients to find out what it’s like to work with you?
Of course! Take a look at our Success Stories page and see which parent and their child’s experience you think resonates with you the most and I will ask them for permission for you to contact them. They’ll be happy to share their experience with you.
How quickly can I expect results for my child?
That depends on you and your child and what package you choose. Some packages are designed to accelerate your child to reaching their goals quicker. For example, if the package you choose consists of 2 classes a week, they are likely to increase their confidence levels twice as fast. It also depends on who your child is, how committed they are, what their previous background in dancing is, how much practise and effort they put in and how much they believe in themselves and the classes. Having said that, we guarantee that all children will experience an increase in their confidence levels within the first 6-12 weeks.
I want my child to do this but I don’t have the money right now, what should I do?
First of all, congratulations on making the decision you have to move your child forward. That decision is going to contribute towards 90% of your child’s success. The next thing to do is not to let immediate obstacles get in the way. When you are committed to your child’s success, you will do whatever it takes to make it happen. We do have a range of payment options, including packages of varying prices and instalment plans.
Okay, I know I want to work with you – you are the sort of person and company I feel my child and I can trust. Which package should I go for?
It depends on where YOUR child is at with their dancing right now. We need to see which profile fits your child.
- Is your child a Street Dance Start Up who just wants to dance once a week, get more confident and make some new friends in the next 12 weeks?
- Is your child an Ultimate Street Dancer who just wants to dance twice a week, learn all aspects of Street Dance, get more confident and make some new friends in the next 12 weeks?
Go to the Getting Started page and find YOUR child’s profile and we’ll show you which package they’ll benefit from the most.
It sounds good and I know which package I want for my child. How do we get them started?
Congratulations and welcome! You have made a great decision for your child. Here’s what you do:
Go to the Getting Started page, choose which package you want and fill out the contact form underneath the profile to start the application process.
Email me at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to get you started.
I can’t wait to meet you and your child, and to help them get started in becoming the confident and happy dancer they deserve to be!
Okay, I think my child is ready but I have some questions – can I contact you?
Of course! Congratulations for taking action. Please contact the team at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to answer your questions and help you with which package is best for your child.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you and getting your child started. Here’s to their success!
